From Old to New!!!

So I found the idea to take my old plain t-shirts that I don't really like to wear and make them into something I do like to wear on http://elizabethkartchner.blogspot.com/2010/04/diy-fabric-ruffle-tee.html. Lizzy used a new shirt and the same color ruffles but I just used what I had so I didn't even have to spend a penny! It turned out way cute!

I first started by taking a plain t-shirt and some fabric from a tank top I don't wear. I then cut about 1 inch strips from the tank top (I used 6).

I then places the pieces where I wanted them, ruffled them, and pinned.
Then I just sewed down the middle of the ruffles taking out the pins right before I sewed the ruffle in place.
I did six rows and it turned out great!
It's like a whole new shirt!
So I decided to wear it today!

I'm making some more cool things so I'll be posting about those soon too! I love crafts!

A couple weekends ago Nick and I went on a hike. Nick found a website of cool places in Utah and Battle Creek Falls was one of them so we tried it out. Here is a glimpse of the beauty.


Nick is cooling off in the mist. It acutally felt quite nice!



Just Chillin

Tonight I got off work early since it was slow so we watched one of our favorite shows together, So You Think You Can Dance and ate frozen grapes. Married life is wonderful!

A New Addition to our Home

The other weekend Nick and I went to the piano store just to look at pianos for fun and found out there were Yamaha pianos at Costco for a discount price. We headed over and decided to get one! We got a digital piano recorded off a grand piano. Nick has really enjoyed playing and practices everyday. I love to listen to him! I haven't really played since the 8th grade so I'm trying to pick it up again. Nick suggested that we have a little recital with friends to make sure we practice and learn new pieces. It is great having a piano in our home!
